A group of female refugees assemble electrical measuring instruments at the Davies and Essex factory on Enford Street, Marylebone, London. According to the original caption, 'as aliens, they are not directed into industry, but they are glad to work their 8 hour shifts' and, as only one of them speaks English, they were trained using a set of sketches.
